A great deal written on this board regarding transport, costs, preparation, etc. - search above for "shipping" or "transportation". This is an area where quality and costs vary wildly, and often not in correlation. Get recommendations and shop around. Often the best advice is, "Why not just shop for what is available locally?" Unless you absolutely love that particular boat or it is so rare you cannot replace it, there's probably something equivalent locally, and you can spend the $10K on a new suite of sails.

Based on the OPs other posts, they may be wanting to take their boat to BC for short time.

Chartering a boat there is a better option if the period of time is short enough.

How big is the boat you are moving ?

To add what others have said above, suggest contacting a Canadian boat transport company like the one below with your specific boat details and they can give you a quote with a trailer and confirm any limitations.
